    Maryland
    Coach: Randy Edsall

    images.jpeg
    Years at Maryland: 3 (Rec: 9-25)
    2013-2014 Record: 3-7
    Prestige: 2 Stars

    It is no secret in Maryland that the Athletic Department is unhappy with Edsall's performance in the 2 years he has coached the Terps. Maryland has repeatedly failed to produce any meaningful wins in the ACC and as the AD recently said, "that is unacceptable."

    Rumored Replacement:
    1) Frederick Woods Merkin (Wash. St.): 10-0

    PROS: Few stories in college football history match the run WSU has had this year. Currently ranked #1 in the country, WSU is set to play for the National Championship so long as they continue their winning ways. Merkin brings an aggressive style offense that would fit right in with the lackluster ACC defenses.
    CONS: Woods Merkin has been plagued with controversy this year. His admitted failure to read the rules regarding the allocation of XP points has many around the country questioning his character. The NCAA is looking into the violation to see if there are any other issues with the WSU football team. If other infractions are found, any school that takes a chance on Woods Merkin will likely be forced to suffer under any sanctions the NCAA imposes.

    Pittsburgh
    Coach: Paul Chryst

    images-2.jpeg
    Years at Pitt: 2 (Rec: 8-15)
    2013-2014 Record: 2-8
    Prestige: 3 Stars

    Pitt has mastered the art of hiring terrible coaches. Year after year and coach after coach, this team consistently seems to come up short in big games. 2013 was no different with the Panthers going a terrible 2-8
    Rumored Replacement:
    1) Cody Erwin (San Jose State): 10-0

    PROS: If it weren't for Wash. State's success, Erwin would be the clear cut leader for coach of the year. Running a pass first offense, SJSU has really not been tested in a game yet this year.
    CONS: Many secretly question whether Erwin's success is due to the talented Fales and Grigsby passing duo coupled with the fact that SJSU plays in the mediocre MWC. While Fales and Grigsby are probably the two most talented players in the MWC, Erwin would be taking over a Pitt team with a clear disadvantage in the talent department.

    Hawaii
    Coach: Norm Chow

    images-3.jpeg
    Years at Hawaii: 2 (Rec: 6-16)
    2013-2014 Record: 3-7
    Prestige: 2 Stars

    It wasn't long ago that Chow was the next big thing in the coaching world. However, a failed stint in the NFL, minor success at UCLA and then his terrible work in Hawaii will lead to his dismissal following the season.
    Rumored Replacement:
    1) Lance Stone (Western Kentucky): 7-3

    PROS: Stone brings a trash talking attitude that appeals to many of his players. Unwilling to back down from anyone, Stone could be the answer Hawaii needs to turn the program around.
    CONS: While Hawaii is tripping over itself to get Stone, rumor is that Stone recently learned that Hawaii's team name is the Rainbow Warriors and, given his hatred of all things homosexual, Stone could very well turn down the position, forcing Hawaii to move to the back of the line in the coaching carousel.
